Amoy Sio Chew Phoi at Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen

Xiamen locals love to pair beer with snacks at home or at a snack bar on the street with friends. This habit has lasted for generations, spawning a series of delicious side dishes known as "Sio Chew Phoi (烧酒配)".   Shangri-La Hotel, Xiamen recently launched more than 10 classic Xiamen local Sio Chew Phoi dishes at its Lobby Lounge, including spiced peanuts, frozen brined fish, pot-stewed hog fat end, frozen steamed crab, boiled octopus, and more — all at affordable prices. Any three dishes ordered together cost only RMB 158 (original price: RMB 238).
